AMBER Meets IRIS Workshop
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
The importance of remote sensing from Sentinel missions for monitoring and managing our river systems
The scope of this workshop is to discuss recent advances in river management and monitoring strategies, by combining results from two projects lead by the Natural Research Management (NRM) group of the Politecnico di Milano: AMBER and IRIS. AMBER (Adaptive Management of Barriers in European Rivers) is a H2020 project which explores adaptive management to the operation of dams and barriers in European rivers. The project aims to achieve a more efficient restoration of stream connectivity, and to address impacts caused by river fragmentation adopting emerging technologies in remote sensing, numerical models and other fields. The IRIS (Italian Research and development Initiative for Spaceborne river monitoring) project aims at developing tools for monitoring medium-large river systems from remote sensing combining drones, traditional field techniques and satellite data from the Sentinel missions of the Copernicus program. IRIS is funded by the Italian Environmental Agency (ISPRA) under the umbrella of the ASI-ISPRA initiative “Habitat Mapping”.
